Hyaluronic Acid filler removal is suitable for most people and emergency treatment is important to understand. We discuss your medical history at your consultation and would ask you to postpone treatment if it were not necessary or you were pregnant or breastfeeding. Treatment may not suitable if you are having immune therapy or undergoing cancer treatment.
Hyaluronidase is suitable to remove hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Different dermal filler products act in different ways. Most dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, however there are some collagen stimulator filler products which are different. If you are considering having dermal filler removal treatment, please obtain your treatment notes from your original treatment. This information is extremely useful to ensure a hyaluronic acid dermal filler has been used and the type to predict the breakdown of the dermal filler you have been injected with.
Hyaluronidase treatment is very safe as a routine procedure. It is also used in the emergency removal of dermal filler when a blood vessel is obstructed. It is performed by Dr Hemming who is extremely experienced in aesthetic injectable techniques.
You should expect some minor discomfort or tenderness initially, this settles very quickly.
Side effects are minimal if any. Injection site tenderness and mild bruising as well as redness, dry skin and itching to the treatment area may occur. HA dermal filler is broken down quickly and any swelling caused should settle within 7-14 days. More serious complications can occur with HA dermal filler use which is why all of our dermal filler treatments are performed by a medically qualified practitioner who is trained in complication management.
Hyaluronidase is an enzyme used to break down unwanted Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler. It is injected into the unwanted product and causes filler to breakdown over 2-5 days. Treatment is effective, however due to the natural differences between us all further treatment may be required to remove all of the unwanted product deposition.
The enzyme is injected through a fine sterile needle into the area of unwanted filler.
Treatment can cause mild discomfort over a few seconds.
Effects can be seen over 2-5 days and the complete effect in 2 weeks.

Dermal filler removal treatments are designed specific type of filler used to give the best results. We often get asked about the cost of treatment. At Thames Skin Clinic we pride ourselves on results rather than focus on the price of a treatment, it is more important that we get the correct quality of product rather than offer cut price treatments, products and services (especially when it comes to medical treatments).
You will never see Thames Skin Clinic advertising services on social coupon sites such as Groupon as we believe they have a negative impact on our customer safety, results and satisfaction. We also wish to abide by the advertising regulator and work in a safe ethical manor.
Our prices reflect the skill, training and premier product choices we have made as well as the true reflection of the beautiful bespoke clinic surroundings.
